Question about Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
I took pictures at a birthday party with an external flash. No problems. Then we went to a girl scout event and I took pictures with the internal flash. No problems. I come home and want to take a picture and on auto, or any automatic flash setting, the flash is not coming up. I hit the fash pop up button: nothing happens. There is no code, and it isn't saying the flash is blocked. It is just shooting at a very slow speed to compensate for the low light because the flash isn't coming up. There was no trama to the camera to cause this. Thank you for your help. I feel very upset that it isn't working and I can't figure why. Ruth

Try defaulting the menu to settings to factory defaults? This may clear the external flash information from the cameras memory?

I've had this happen to me too and I've been researching about it. Aparantly it happens because the camera still think the external flash is attached. If you go into the menu and under flash control, try ot enter the settings for built in flash. If this is the problem it will tell you here that the external flash is still attached. From what I have read to far, I'm not sure how to fix it. I would reccomend taking it in somehwere. I dont htink its a hard problem to fix.
